Abstract

Within a 6-mo period, a radio-collared, white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus) doe from Delaware, US, developed a fatal head mass consistent with osteochondroma. We suspected a retroviral etiology, but test results were negative. Population implications were not suspected, but this case is concerning as these tumors are not thought to cause mortality.
